When you’re out there in the world exploring and snapping photos along the way, instant photography is the perfect companion. instax cameras are great for hitting the road and Fujifilm instax SQUARE cameras (the SQ6 or the SQ20) are especially ideal for capturing the fun. Here are five reasons why.
1. Real life, beautifully squared
Just like all the other instax cameras, photos are printed instantly from the SQUARE cameras. But what makes the SQUARE unique is that the photos are, unlike the instax mini, square-shaped. That means no debating about whether to shoot in portrait or landscape mode. It also means a finished product that is 62mm by 62mm — big enough to capture that sunset, mountain or city scene you’re after.
2. Preview before you print
The instax SQUARE SQ20 is a hybrid camera, meaning that it uses film, but also captures images digitally. That makes it ideal for travel – you can snap away and print later when you’re home. Exploring your world is as much about making connections as it is about seeing sites. The SQ20 allows you to quickly print and share images, but if the picture is no good, you can retake the shot without wasting film. You can also crop and edit photos with a variety of filters.
3. The perfect solo travel buddy
Travelling with your family, friend or partner is wonderful, but so is going it alone. When you travel solo, you’re often more perceptive and in tune to the world around you. Selfie mirrors featured on both the instax SQUARE SQ6 and SQ20 make sure that you don’t miss out on the shot just because you’re on your own.
4. Capture and print the action
Travel can be slow and contemplative (like visiting a museum) or it can be full of action (like hitting the waves). If you’re more of the action type, you’ll appreciate the SQ20 Frame Grab feature. Here’s how it works: You shoot a video up to 15 seconds long then use the dial on the back of the camera to select the frame that captures the moment best. Print and you’re done.
5. Shoot and print later
Running out of film is never a problem. As much as you may want to travel with 10 packs of film, that isn’t always possible with all the other stuff you have to pack. If you run out of instax square film for your SQ20, you can keep shooting knowing that your images are being saved digitally and can be printed later.
Travelling is all about seeing new places, trying new foods, meeting new people and expanding your horizons. An instax SQUARE camera allows you to capture and share those moments—and create memories that last forever.
